What is your chosen major? (*)

Invalid Input

Please note registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Classes fill up quickly, so you will want to register early to better ensure your first choice of core course.

Course Registration:

All CSI students will be registered in RPED 110, a required course. However, all CSI students must choose one more course.

ALL NON-STEM MAJORS WILL TAKE LDRS 101 (Orientation Course) or GNRL 160 (Honors & Scholars) and RPED 110 plus one more course from the following list:
  • ENGL 101 - Composition and Literature I.
  • FNAR 306 - Photography
  • BADM 201 - Principles of Macroeconomics
  • LDRS 320 - Leadership Communication
  • CRMJ 201 - Introduction to Criminal Justice
  • MATH 104 - Elementary Mathematical Modeling

All of the above courses WILL count toward undergraduate degree requirements.


2. MATH 119 (Precalculus) and RPED 110
For STEM majors who:
  • Need to take MATH 131 (Analytic Geometry and Calculus I) for their scholarship program
  • Are interested in pursuing a major or minor in:
  1. Chemistry (B.S.)
  2. Civil, Electrical, Construction, or Mechanical Engineering
  3. Mathematics
  4. Physics
  5. Computer Science
*Except for Construction Engineering, MATH 119 will NOT count toward undergraduate degree requirements, but is mandatory for STEM majors who do not place into MATH 131.

*To enroll in this MATH course, students MUST take the Math Placement Exam (MPE) and receive notification of placement from the Mathematical Sciences Department. Students will receive information about the MPE via email at the end of March. The MPE will open May 1st and is taken ONLINE.

ALL students may take RPED 155 (Nutrition) in addition to their core courses. RPED 155 is highly recommended for all students, but is vital to those students who may not meet height/weight requirements. This course will count toward a second RPED activity.

Please pay the balance due within 30 days to guarantee class placement.

I have previously taken one or more of the following courses (to include AP Credit, Dual Enrollment, or any type of Transfer Credit): (*)

PAR Q Questionnaire:

Please respond to the following questions concerning your ability to engage in daily physical activity. Read each question carefully, and answer it honestly by checking YES or NO.


  • If you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever, please check with our staff before engaging in physical activity.
  • Please note: If your health changes so that you, then, answer YES to any of the PAR Q questions, please consult with your health professional before attending CSI.

1. Has your doctor ever said that you have a medical condition that limits physical activity?

Invalid Input
2. Do you feel pain in your chest or are short of breath when you do physical activity?

Invalid Input
3. In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?

Invalid Input
4. Do you lose your balance because of dizziness, or do you ever lose consciousness?

Invalid Input
5. Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?

Invalid Input
6. Do you know of any other reason why you should not participate in physical activity?

Invalid Input
7. Do you have allergies?

Invalid Input
If you answered YES, please provide a list of your allergies.

Invalid Input
8. Currently, do you take prescription drugs?

Invalid Input
9. Are you bringing any medications with you?

Invalid Input
If you answered YES, please list all of your medications.

Invalid Input
10. Please indicate your response by checking one or both of the boxes below. If you leave the box(es) blank, we will assume that you cannot do the activities.Can you:

Invalid Input

YES to one or more questions (1-6), you MUST have written clearance from your doctor BEFORE you become more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal during CSI. Tell your doctor about the PAR Q and which questions you answered YES. You may be able to engage in physical activity, but you may need to begin, slowly, and then, build up your fitness level. Or, you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Consult with your doctor about any kinds of activities that you must avoid and follow his/her advice.

NO to all questions: If you answered NO, honestly, to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure that you can become more physically active. You will want to begin slowly and build up gradually.
A fitness appraisal provides an excellent way to determine your basic fitness and to help you determine what activities are best for you.

Payment Information:
You will receive your Lesesne Gateway portal credentials from the Admissions Office, and will then be able to pay your CSI bill online through the student tab in Lesesne Gateway. The total bill for CSI is $2600 (both in-state & out-of-state). Please do not email or fax payment information.

Please Note: The Citadel will accept 529 plan payments for the CSI fee. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept payments from pre-paid tuition plans. Pre-paid plans require a per-credit-hour rate to be utilized. In an effort to offer the CSI program at the lowest possible cost, the program was packaged and a comprehensive CSI fee was determined. A credit-hour rate cannot be extracted from the CSI fee. It is advantageous to utilize a pre-paid tuition plan when students are enrolled in a full-time status.

I understand that I MUST be Medically Cleared and have all vaccinations required by The Citadel NO LATER than May 24, 2019. (*)
